    Are any of you familiar with this app?

    How does it work? Is it practical? What is your experience with it?

    I use it when I'm buying things on my app store... Kinda just takes your information and uses it to process the transaction. I don't really know else it does.

    I use the email version for emailing cash to people, never saw a need to use the NFC chip. Just as easy to use your card

    Is it useful? Do you find it convenient?

    Isnt that the app where you put your card info into it and when you go to pay at a gas station or whatever you use the app and it sends the info to the machine paying it?

    I think you have to use google wallet if you buy from the google play store. I just tied it to my paypal card and it seems safe and secure.

    I never use it to buy anything else though. That near field communication stuff I think is too new and I don't trust it yet. Also, as a poster above me mentioned, it's no more convenient than using other payment methods so there's really no benefit yet.

    Naa but my new debit card has an NFC chip which is kinda nice. Not that is a big deal to swipe it but I kinda like not having to.
